better than textmechanic

(1/2) > >>


do you know any website, or maybe create one! that will be better than textmechanic?

it has really useful tools, but it doesn't cover all the possible situations

for example, it doesn't have a function to convert a list of object1, object2, object3, into a vertical list, etc

I would also like to be able to create all the possible combinations between 2 or 3 lists of strings


any idea?


For the first request, not a website, but a command-line tool.

sed (stream editor) is a Unix utility that parses and transforms text, using a simple, compact programming language.
--- End quote ---

You want a comma-separated list transformed into a vertical list?

--- ---sed 's/, /\n/g' comma_list.txt > vert_list.txt
Sed for windows can be found here:

The combinations of strings will have to be done as a programming exercise.  Eric Lippert, a C# compiler dev for Microsoft, has an interesting, though kinda technical, series on just such a thing which is known as Context-Free Grammar which is important in the design of programming languages.  Don't know if it'll help at all, but I couldn't do any better.

In Powershell:

--- Code: PowerShell ---$a = Get-Content comma_list.txt ; $a.Split(",") >> vert_list.txt
For word permutations in Powershell, see here.

as for the latter? to generate all the possible combinations of two lists of strings?

also guys, I need this to work in any pc, that's why I want it in a website and not in a script
